The production designer reads 100 pages of nothing-but-words-on-paper and then must literally dream up the most perfect of all possible worlds in which the tale should take place. Though the story may be set in some mythic past, the here and now, or some nearly unimaginable future, it's always human emotion rendered in color and composition. And following that, the designer must gather and organize an army of artists who, over months or years, in plaster or in pixels, will somehow render that design for the big screen. Panelists are Dave Blass (Preacher), James Chinlund (War for the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Avengers), Sean Haworth (Deadpool), and Patrick Tatopoulos (Die Hard 4, Dark City, I, Robot). John Muto (Home Alone, Species) moderates.
